Default Math and what is burned question

I tend to work with numbers and I can guess that "math" really doesn't play too much in body recomposition or does it? Probably a little but not very predictably? Anyway, here's my question....

I suppose the new "fad" is Keto dieting. Seems all over the place. In reading about it, it seems to make sense and then again perhaps every "body" is still different in how it may process food. My question....

If one is in a calorie deficit, isn't glucose at some point depleted such that the body will go searching for it from either "muscle" or "stored fat?" And if that is correct, and one eats a sufficient amount of "protein" in an effort to reduce the likelihood of one's body targeting "muscle" for the glucose, why isn't the body naturally looking to the stored fat for energy? Why is it more likely to target stored fat in ketosis vs. just a normal healthy deficit that might include say 30-40% carbs?

Fat becomes the fuel source when carbs are unavailable. Here's a detailed article from the main site.

And "ketosis doesn't matter".

Lyle: Perhaps keto is not a fad to you since you know it's been around for a long time. But the news and markets and bookstores are filled with "keto" everything (at least it seems more prevalent in the past year or so). JMHO.

I'd still like an answer to the above question if possible. I read the article. I think I understand that when the body has no carbs for glucose, it looks for fat (or muscle?) for energy. In trying to optimize fat loss vs. weight loss, is resistance training sufficient? And if ketosis doesn't matter and resistance training is more conducive to targeting stored fat how so?
